Ettiquette when you're not involved with the shower??

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Here's the deal.....my mom and I aren't really girly girls and so we came to an agreement that we weren't going to have a shower, and we're happy with this. What she offered me, was to give me the money she would have spent organizing it, plus the cash value for all the gifts I would have received. So duh, yeah I took it! lol

 

FMIL and family are insisting on throwing me a shower even though I don't want one and told them about the deal I struck with my mom. I'm ok with it though, they're going to keep it small and intimate, and it would be kinda fun.

 

Here's my dilema.....what are my responsibilities for a shower I'm not involved with? Do I have to get little thank you gifts for people there. Do I have to do anything at allhuh.gif I don't know what to do.

I agree you have to act as if it was a surprise shower you would not prepare anything for your guest...but you do have to send thank you cards for all guest that attend, and I know when I hosted showers I even bought and addresses all the thank you cards in advance so it was less stress added to the bride since she already had so much to do

I agree with the other ladies, you should just thank those who gave you the party and the people that came, especially those who gave you a gift.

where i'm from, showers are always surprise parties (or at least are supposed to be surprises!) ... so the bride wouldn't ever come prepared with stuff for the hostesses, and certainly not be responsible for favors or anything like that!

 

just as others have already said, just be sure to send thank yous to everyone who attended, planned, hosted, or gave gifts!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
